June 22, 2012, Toronto – The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices
Association (CRFA) and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) have
signed an agreement to launch a Canadian version of the Conserve
Sustainability Education Program. The initiative will provide Canadian
restaurant operators and foodservice establishments with tools and
information to become more environmentally friendly in areas ranging
from energy use to waste management. 
 
“Environmental sustainability is a growing area of interest for our
members and their customers. We look forward to leveraging Conserve’s
best practices and lessons into a uniquely Canadian program that will
help our members reduce their environmental footprint, as well as saving
them time and money,” said Garth Whyte, president and CEO of CRFA. “The
Conserve program will be an important resource for operators across our
country.”
 
“We are so pleased to begin this partnership with our friends in the
Canadian restaurant and foodservice industry,” said Dawn Sweeney,
president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. “The National
Restaurant Association launched the Conserve initiative to raise
awareness and provide resources to every U.S. restaurant operator
regardless of size, and it has been exciting to see how Conserve has
grown in just a few short years.”
 
The Conserve program in Canada is expected to launch this fall and will
have an online presence to ensure operators can easily access
educational materials, including videos and case studies, similar to the
original program but customized for the Canadian market. 
 
The Conserve Sustainability Education Program is an online resource
designed to initiate and inspire environmentally friendly actions that
also improve a company’s bottom line. The program focuses on ways to
reduce energy, waste and water.
